On June 11, NTDTV interviewed Victoria Shadow Attorney-General of Australia, Edward O’Donohue on some issues, such as the current situation in Hong Kong, the June 4th Tiananmen Square massacre, and Victoria signing the belt and road agreement. O’Donohue said that signing the belt and road agreement brought risks to Australian national security.

In October of 2019, the Premier of Victoria, Australia Daniel Andrews, signed a framework agreement with China on the Belt and Road Initiative, which goes against the position of the federal government and security agencies. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison expressed his shock and stated in an interview with Voice of Vietnam Radio on June 11 that the state of Victoria should scrap the Belt and Road Initiative deal because it goes against the country’s national interests. resource
